remember the old argument. guns don't kill people, people do. and that's where senator pat toomey is right. a wider, stronger background check covering all commercial purchasers of guns is not really about what kinds of guns are out there, and what could be sold, it's about the people out there and who shouldn't have their hands on any gun. and this is where the battle for better background checks stands. right now. can the supporters of gun safety get 50 votes in the senate on the background check, itself? can they get 60 votes to clear a filibuster? can they get the one vote, the speaker of the house, to schedule the vote in the house? can they get 218 votes in the house to actually pass it? then, of course, get the signature of the president to make it law? so these are the numbers. 50. 60. one. 218. and one. five gates to pass through for us to have a stronger background check to become part of the law. pia carusone is former chief of staff to congresswoman gabby giffords and now runs the group, americans for responsible solutions. and nia malika henderson is a political reporter for t

legislation. today, manchin and republican senator pat toomey announced a bill that would expand the background system to cover all commercial gun sales, included those conducted at gun shows and online. today, president obama released this statement. this is not my bill and there are aspects of the agreement that i might prefer to be stronger, but the agreement does represent welcome and significant bipartisan progress. the first procedural vote on gun control legislation is scheduled for tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. on the senate floor. a group of republican senators continues to threaten to oppose the motion to proceed on any gun legislation. they intend to mount a filibuster that according to their public rationale is based entirely on a lie. here is how senator ted cruz tells that lie. >> for any legislation that is potentially infringing the bill of rights, taking away our constitutional protections, i think it should be a 60 vote threshold. >> it is well established in law and supreme court precedent that there is nothing being contemplated in the united states senate that infri

today with republican senator pat toomey. the offices of the senator saying the nra was in the room watching over the negotiations on that legislation every step of the way. the other bipartisan legislation released on gun trafficking today from senators pat leahy and susan collins also announced today as having been agreed upon with the nra. and while the nra itself is maintaining its same old publicly hostile stance, even to the measures they were said to be involved with, hopes to the passage of the very modest reforms, hope for those passing rests now on the hope that these guys have had their rings kissed enough in the development of this legislation, that even though they are publicly hostile, they might not rear up to their full height in fighting these bills, and, therefore, maybe something might be able to be passed. and that is one way to think about this, one way to think about the power, right. the other way is to look up from the late '90s and look around and realize the nra isn't the only game in town anymore. >> and as i visited with the family at the funeral, i could

put forth by joe manchin and pat toomey. the vote was 54 for, 46 against. it takes 60 votes to get a bill passed. president obama was joined afterwards by gabby giffords and families of newtown victims and delivered one passionate reaction to today's vote which roughly 40% of the american people believe in something, the senate failed to respond. >> all in all, this was a pretty shameful day for washington. but this effort is not over. >> 90% of the american people support extended background checks and they couldn't get it passed in the representative u.s. senate. >>> let's again with the latest on the investigation up in boston into those bombings. nbc analyst michael leiter was director of the national counterterrorism center and clint van zandt is a profiler. all of this is a key related, battery pack, circuit board, news about the pressure cooker. a piece of it discovered. so much physical evidence and then the picture taken by the video surveillance camera at lord & ta are lo, we've confirmed, it's a picture of someone putting down a black bag, some sort of shopping bag, and

cain, pat toomey of course and mark kirk of illinois. the four democrats who voted against it and shame on them, heidi heitkamp, north dakota. mark pryor from arkansas. max baucus from montana and mark begich from alaska, but just want to point out even if all four of those democrats had voted for it it still would not have passed because republicans filibustered it and 90% voted against it. >> people are fired up on twitter where we're tweeting at bpshow. echoing what you just said. shame on heitkamp and reid for not getting this done. >> bill: harry reid voted no but he voted no as a procedural matter so he has a right then to bring the bill up again for another vote. so we have to recognize that. >> phil does my job for me. he self-edits. he just says bleep the bleeping nra bleeps who bleeping bought the bleeping congress and bleep those bleeping nra tools who lack the backbones. >> bill: sounds like me, too. yeah, right. joey in chicago. joey, come on, what's going on? >> caller: i gotta tell you right now bill, unless you can donate money to them people, those sandy hook people nev

. first of all, i think we should give pat toomey and joe manchin an enormous amount of credit. they are courageous and stood alone and came from conservative states. pat's constituency is very conservative and one of the most conservative people in the senate. joe manchin, west virginia, pro gun state and they stood up and did the right thing. secondly, this is really, i think the end of the civil war and the party. the nra is best terrifying the members of the senate which they did a good job yesterday. we had to go through this to get there. n i think there may be another vote, if not, another bill of some sort but this is -- this is the upheaval in the republican party. this is the attempt of the leadership of the republican party in the form of people like pat toomey to get back to the middle so they can win elections again and nra is very busy recruiting the angry people to them and that is what this is about. i think we had to have this battle. we may have had to lose this battle in order to galvanize the american people to understand how they are being blackmailed by th

manchin and pat toomey, that would expand the background check to just about every commercial sale and exempt most private sales. a lot of senators said this was something that they needed in order to vote to proceed to formal debate on the actual legislation. it is expected that that proposal would have enough to read the question is, what other amendments will be considered. ? we believe the controversial assault weapons ban will be proposed. there is a proposal by senators leahy and susan collins about gun trafficking, knowingly buying it -- buying a weapon for somebody who is not supposed to have one. who knows? see reciprocity of concealed carry permits across the country. maybe some changes to how the government a's for and supports until health programs throughout the country. we expect weeks of debate on this him at least the balance of april and maybe intimate. .- maybe into may , tell us aboute this first step, this amendment by senator mansion and senator pat toomey pennsylvania -- how does it get included? guest: they will bring it up tuesday. they will have debate on i

is standing at that podium. you interviewed pat toomey. he is critical in this pageant because now this is coming to the health. pat toomey is a viability conservative republican who is going to make his case. i think a lot of suburban republicans who represent moderates in the suburbs will back this background check bill. >> all right. before we get to your budget -- >> yeah, the fact that this poll is at 90% and the fact that the politicians are so far behind the people on this issue to me is just a key piece of evidence that on the issue of guns, democracy is pretty broken. i'm kind of with you, i just don't understand why the gop is stonewalling and can only believe it's really not the gop, it's the nra. so the question is they must believe they're going to lose their seat if they vote against the nra and for the people. and i don't think that's the right calculus, but i guess we'll see. >> democrats have the same problem. democrats behave pretty rationally. this is john's column in the new york post today. >> i missed it somehow. >> he's pretty good and says republicans may be

on the right for wiggle room. to begin to move in the direction that pat toomey is leading them. and i think you hit it right on the head. he's gone outside of the standard norm that would be expected of a conservative on something like this. >> an a-rated nra senator. >> an nra member. i think that that is a again, you're beginning to see the kind of shifts, and it goes back to something i said on your show a few weeks ago. >> i love it when you quote yourself. >> i don't get to do it too often. but, no, we were going back and forth. and i said you know, let's let this thing unfold because there are going to be a lot of twists and turns, whether you're talking about immigration, you're talking about guns. and even on gay marriage. within the gop, you're going to see an evolution begin to accelerate. not at a rapid speed. and i think this is one of those issues where you take the statements of someone like a paul ryan, and the leadership of a pat tomorrowy, itomey, it's m elephant in a direction the elephant isn't used to going in. >> really the bravery of someone like pat toomey to stand up
